Still over here craving all the veggies (along with peanut butter and a few other things) and this Green Soup So Good is packed with them! While I love my salads and green juices sometimes I like to switch things up. The last two weeks we’ve had some interesting weather to say the least, snow one day and then sunshine and a warm day thrown in. This had me craving soup on the cold days and then I would go to make a soup and it would be a warm day. My head was spinning for lunch and I went to the fridge and threw together a green soup like this one. It was so good I made it a couple days later on a crazy soccer night. The girls had something light, I can’t remember what, since they both had soccer and didn’t want a big meal and then had something else to eat when they got home. Mr. Whisk was running late so he grabbed a jar of this soup on his way out the door to take S to soccer and came back saying he really liked it.
The best part about this Green Soup So Good, besides being delicious and healthy, is that it’s easy to make and you can make it with leftovers or veggies you need to use up! There isn’t a right or wrong way to make this soup really. I’ve got my recipe of how I’ve been making it but if you don’t like something you can omit it or play around and switch things up. Lately we don’t have rice or quinoa very often but we did that day from me making as my oldest requested so I used a jade pearl rice. If you have leftover noodles you could use those. You don’t have either or want to make it without grains add more veggies. I’ve add in chopped carrot and even leftover blanched asparagus I had from making a salad for lunch. I almost always have my favorite local Juice So Good Fierce Greens in my fridge and it’s available at over 400 grocery stores nationwide as well as online. I like it because it’s all greens, well and a little lemon, so it isn’t sweet (it’s Fierce after all) and works perfectly in this soup. If you have another favorite green juice, local juice shop, or can’t find Juice So Good pick one with just greens and vegetables that isn’t sweet. Juice So Good Fierce Greens contains kale, celery, romaine, dandelion greens, lemon, and love.
I was going to just share this on Instagram but decided it was so good I had to share the recipe here and also give you a heads up about a juice GIVEAWAY I have over on Instagram this afternoon for Juice So Good! Yes a delicious variety of Juice So Good cold pressed juices will be mailed to one lucky winner! Plus it’s also like other recipes I like to share where they are meant to inspire you and have you think out of the box and try something different and adapt it to what you have and like while sharing what I love.
I can think of so many reasons to love this soup! It’s even made with love, mine and in the juice it’s made with! Yes Juice So Good even has love listed as an ingredient, trust me you can taste it. Maybe that’s another reason I love it. Really though there is a lot of love in each bottle. Their juices are cold pressed, organic, non-GMO verified, and preservative free. They are made using over 60% local produce that is farmed with organic, biodynamic and ethical standards. I can’t help but smile as I sip them, from a bottle, in a smoothie, or this Green Soup So Good!

1c green Juice (Juice So Good Fierce Greens)*
1-2 tsp miso (Miso Master Organic Chickpea Miso)

Place cucumber, rice, and avocado to a bowl. Or for on the go a quart mason jar. Blend green juice, 1 teaspoon miso, and cayenne together in a Vitamix, or high-speed blender, until smooth. Add more miso, cayenne, or sea salt to taste. The miso will add saltiness. Pour over vegetables. Top with hemp seeds and micro greens.
